VH Crowned Champions as they conquer commando charity challenge


The 9th October saw the 5 strong VH team, head off to tackle the world famous Royal Marines Endurance Training Course on Woodbury Common. Following a safety briefing, transportation in Military truck and full warm up by a Royal Marine PT instructor the VH team were ready for action, and set off a good pace. A short distance in the team encountered Peter's Pool", " the "Crocodile Pit and the infamous The Sheep Dip" which saw employees submerged into pitch black water and pulled through concrete tunnels by Royal Marines. Emerging soaking wet and covered in thick mud, all the team were still in excellent spirits.

Alex Sproson, team leader commented, “It was a team effort and although the terrain was fairly challenging, we all pulled together and finished with smiles on our faces. We raised over £400 for Devon Air Ambulance and the marine charities and despite the boggy conditions we completed the course in good time and actually won our category!”

This challenge is part of one of our 25 challenges for 25 years and we are well on our way to achieving our goal and raising money for worthwhile charities.
